MediaWiki talk:Titleblacklist

Jump to navigation Jump to search

See Extension:TitleBlacklist for technical information and meta:Title blacklist for Wikimedia's global blacklist.

Please allow autoconfirmed for the following pattern,

.*index\.php.* # anti-spambot

Please change it to,

.*index\.php.* <autoconfirmed|noedit> # anti-spambot

Titleblacklist not working here?[edit]

I wanted to test Extension:TitleBlacklist behavior on a wiki that doesn't use Extension:E3Experiments. So based on the contents of's Titleblacklist, I tried to create an account named "Paydayloans test test bug 42982"... and it succeeded, no blacklist error!

I tried again with another name from's Titleblacklist, "Bsadowski1isntmyusername test bug 42982". That also worked!

I don't want to create accounts, I want to see Titleblacklist rejecting. But it seems it's not working right here. Maybe is configured to look at the master list on ? Meanwhile, if there's a name that will definitely be rejected due to Titleblacklist, let me know, thanks. -- S Page (WMF) (talk) 09:08, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

SUL login with cyrillic usernamens fails[edit]

Please note the following thread:

I have commented out the rule in this revision. I don't know enough about this function to really check, what needs to be changed to re-enable this rule without preventing all cyrillic usernamens from logging in, so can someone check this?

Google misspelling pattern matching wrong for Talk: pages[edit]

The current pattern is preventing me from creating a discussion talk page on Google Code-in/2017.

Please change it to the following one which would except titles starting with "Talk:",


which would allow me to open a new topic about wrap-up blog posts. --Divadsn (talk) 10:43, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Something like .*g+(o+)g+le\s(?!Summer_of_Code\/\d{4})|(?!Code-in\/\d{4}) maybe, to allow yearly subpages of "Google Summer of Code" and "Google Code-in". That regex is wrong though; someone who has more knowledge of regexes is welcome to help. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 09:49, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
I've changed the regex so this should be okay now. Does that look right to you guys? --Krenair (talkcontribs) 11:52, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Adding such exceptions to MediaWiki:Titlewhitelist would make more sense. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 09:59, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

hi all I trapped in 'The title "Translations:Extension:GoogleLogin/Page display title/fr" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: " .*g+(o+)g+le?\S?((?!Summer of Code\/\d{4})|(?!Code-in\/\d{4})).*"

while trying to translate at

Discussion :

FR translation cannot start and should be allowed.


I've added an exception to MediaWiki:Titlewhitelist. Please confirm that it works as expected. Mainframe98 talk 21:38, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
